Adidas will pay 50 million euros ($57 million) a year to extend its sponsorship deal with the German soccer association (DFB), twice as much as it has paid so far, German paper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) reported. Adidas currently pays around 25 million euros a year to supply the world champions but faced competition from U.S. rival Nike for the contract.

Swiss follow France to last 16, Albania upsets Romania

Though teams often swap shirts with their opponents after a game, Switzerland's players were forced to change their own ones several times in an eventful 0-0 draw with France at the European Championship on Sunday. Along with the four ripped shirts there was another unusual sight as the ball burst in the second half of a draw that sealed Switzerland's place in the last 16, alongside an already-qualified France. The result ended up suiting both, with France taking first place in Group A and the Swiss advancing in second plac

Albania kept its hopes of qualifying for the round of 16 alive with a 1-0 victory over Romania on Sunday, a result that eliminated its opponent.

By Philip Blenkinsop LILLE, France (Reuters) - While France and Switzerland largely got what they wanted with a 0-0 draw at Euro 2016 on Sunday, it was a night of shame for ground staff and sports manufacturers. Four Swiss players had to change ripped shirts, the Adidas match ball, sold outside for 140 euros ($158), burst and a cut-up pitch at the Stade Pierre Mauroy, that had to be patched up by groundsmen at halftime, sent players sliding.

France ended the group stage of Euro 2016 in the position they wanted but with their coach still looking for the right formula to bring the best out of a team with high expectations. Didier Deschamps has been tinkering since the start of the tournament, again making five changes for Sunday's 0-0 draw with Switzerland that allowed the host nation to win their group.

Albania's first win at Euro 2016 against Romania on Sunday was the ultimate display of coach Gianni De Biasi's one-for-all and all-for-one mentality. In his four years as coach, Italian De Biasi has tried various players to find the perfect combination and it seems he found it on Sunday.

France had the best chances in a lively first half but the intensity then dropped, with both sides looking happy with a result that means Les Bleus win the group with seven points from three games ahead of the Swiss in second two points back.
